Pumpkin Pie Powerhouse Smoothie

When was the last time your child ate pumpkin? Never? Yeah. Mine either. Until I started making these shakes. Pumpkin-anything is generally on our Fall menu but my little guy requested this shake today. (Because pumpkin in August makes perfect sense to a four-year old.)

It’s so healthy, I have no problem making it.

One cup of pumpkin has 7 grams of fiber. 19 mg of Omega 3's...no fish oil required? I'm in. And check out all the vitamins and minerals!

Here’s what you need:

  • 1/2 can pumpkin
  • 2 cups So Delicious Coconut Milk
  • 2 tbsp pumpkin pie spice
  • 3 tsp cinnamon
  • 2 tsp brown sugar
  • 1 tsp raw local honey
  • dash of vanilla extract
  • 1 banana
  • 1 cup of ice
  • 2 scoops Vanilla Fit Food

Here's what you do:

Blend & Enjoy. Don't forget to call it pumpkin "pie" so your kid thinks you're super amazing and serving them desert. As always, you can add more ice for a thicker shake or more water for a thinner shake. We like ours thick and milk-shake-y around here.

PPS: Remember this when it’s Pumpkin Spice Latte season at Starbucks. Throw in a shot of espresso, save yourself 4 bucks, and pack in a boat load of nutrition for yourself.
